WITH the Premier League trophy heading for Central Acemates' cabinet, only pride will be at stake this weekend as the Pefa season begins to wind down.
NMMU Madibaz, who blew their chances of ending the season as runners-up after losing to Acemates last week after being 3-1 ahead, play Warriors at the south campus tonight.

Hearts, who are favourites to fill the runners-up berth, should have an easy match against PE City, who are being hammered by all and sundry.
Defending champions Callies, who have had the most disappointing season in years, play PE Defence at the EP Command field.
